Studio Museum of Harlem presented Afro Muses in 2005: 181 watercolors created over the prior ten years by artist Chris Ofili. A part of his prodigious output of works on paper, this selection of watercolors had never been exhibited before. Organized by the artist and Thelma Golden, chief curator, this exhibition included images of men and women with a few birds and flowers, arranged as individual works, couples and groups. Ofili describes making these works as both pleasurable and challenging. Deriving from a meditative exercise, this presentation represents the evolution of his particular studio practice. Upon first viewing, the images can easily be perceived as portraits of individuals.
